for learning before we were to parade on to
high school. We are dedicated to the proposi-
tion that all eighth graders are created above
We have been engaged in a great struggle,
testing whether our teachers or any teachers so
dedicated, can long endure. We have traveled
together on the great highway of learning. We
have come to dedicate a portion of our posses-

Sherry Kagee, Yell Leaderl, have consecrated our
great castle of learning. The world will llittle re-

here, but it can never forget what we mighty
eighth.graders have done. Therefore, we, the
proud and trustworthy eighth graders, hereby
bequeath some of our most cherished remem-
brances to the underclassmen, the seventh
